Candidate of Action Alliance (AA) in the November governorship election in Kogi state, Otunba Olayinka Braimoh, has reiterated his avowed commitment to wealth generation and distribution for shared prosperity.

Speaking during visits to the palaces of Olukotun of Ife Olukotun and Elejuku of Ejuku, both in Yagba East local government area of Kogi state, Braimoh said he has the blueprint that will put an end to poverty in Kogi State under 3 years.

According to the governorship candidate, his STAT Agenda is the solution to poverty in the state.

He said the STAT Agenda which comprises solid mineral development, tourism, agriculture, and trade will reduce over-dependence on Federal allocations.

Otunba Braimoh also promised to introduce regenerative agriculture if voted into power.

According to him, regenerative agriculture is a mixed cropping system of farming system where a farmer can plant different crops on the same land, saying part of his plan is to train 1000 farmers in the modern farming method.

He said since the land in Kogi State is fertile for farming, a new lease of life will come for farmers only if they vote wisely in the November Governorship election in the State.

The governorship candidate maintained that he is on an assignment to salvage the state from poverty and transform it into a wealthy one.

“Despite having four successive Governors over two decades, Kogi is still in abject poverty. The poverty level keeps increasing due to huge dependency on Federal allocation. I have a plan to bring cash inflow into the state economy.

“We are rich in solid minerals but poor in reality. If Kogi refuses to develop solid minerals, outsiders will do it and take the money away,” Otunba Braimoh added.

In his remarks, the Olukotun of Ifeolukotun, Alh. Shaibu Muhammed said the AA Governorship Candidate is a replica of his family in intellectual capacity and humility.

Alh. Shaibu recalled his close relationship with late Chief S.O Braimoh, father of the governorship candidate, stating that he had a rich blueprint capable of changing the state economy.

“I am happy when you told me that you are the son of my late friend, S.O Braimoh. Your father has a good antecedent. I will receive you as Governor in my palace,” the monarch said.

Braimoh also met with different groups including market women, artisans, members of NURTW, religious leaders, youths, and students in Ifeolukotun.
